Famous quotes containing the word part:

    Unlike the Concord, the Merrimack is not a dead but a living stream, though it has less life within its waters and on its banks. It has a swift current, and, in this part of its course, a clayey bottom, almost no weeds, and comparatively few fishes.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Maria: You should get out of these clothes immediately. You’ll catch your death of pneumonia, you will.
    Inspector Clouseau: Yes, yes, I probably will. But it’s all part of life’s rich pageantry.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)

    Two may talk and one may hear, but three cannot take part in a conversation of the most sincere and searching sort. In good company there is never such discourse between two, across the table, as takes place when you leave them open.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
